Default Aretha Franklin Queen of Soul Dead at 76

Aretha Franklin has died today.

Aretha Franklin Queen of Soul Dead at 76

I remember a few years ago when there was an effort to rank the best pop singers alive at that time, and Aretha Franklin topped the list at #1. Later she was going to sing some sort of duet with Mariah Carey, and Carey looked like she was trying to sneak off of the platform, she was so outclassed by Aretha.

Rest in peace, Aretha. You will be missed.
